they needed to do something. the first thing you're talking about with mitt romney and foreign policy had been this trip to europe, europe, poland, israel, the olympics hadn't gone so well. now they have something to talk about. how did it go? i think the main difference and what they strive to do is paint a contrast between them and the obama administration. the contrast becomes part of their posturing. how are we going to approach foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of t
for 40 years. ryan did want to talk about his experience because the romney ticket is trying to run as outsiders. he came off like two d. hauser, the guy trying to get into washington, when in fact he's been here for 14 years. >> my candidate for missed opportunities is in the vice president was hectoring paul ryan about you guys take responsibility. what are you responsibility? paul ryan could've said we've tried to take responsibility. we tried to get a major budget deal past, but the president moved the goalpost or the president was unwilling to leave. >> well, i go back to how we started this conversation. i felt during the whole debate on substance anyway, paul ryan was treading water. he just didn't want to make a mistake. he had a lot of soundbites. >> but what i am concerned about -- not concerned about, but what i'm curious about is how the viewer the voter will see that on some of these quickie polls, they are coming out a little closer than i would've thought. i would've thought biden would be a little more -- >> is such a useful reminder. a couple warhorses like ourselve
-to-head again. that is different kind of format. the town hall format. president and mitt romney will talk to individual voters asking questions, that may be a better format for the president. jon: but it does seem that states like ohio and nevada are getting tighter, and you know, with, well the election is four weeks from tomorrow. if that momentum holds for the romney team, it could really be a surprising turn around come election day? >> it certainly could. of course the romney campaign and republican national committee did a big turnout drive this past weekend. they have been doing a lot of that. we've seen it, we've seen it more from democrats. they have been exposing some of their organizational advantages all summer long. we're just now seeing how much the romney campaign is doing in some of these states. you're right, it absolutely could turn around. until we see romney leading in a lot of these averages in a lot of these states the president still has the edge. jon: one of the questions is about voter enthusiasm. one poll says republican enthusiasm, especially post-debate, is muc
. this is not the recovery we all wanted but we're on the road. for mitt romney it does take away one of talking points he has been very big on, number of consecutive months that the number has been at 8% or above, that line is gone from his speech. short term positives are there for president obama but long term you look at the historical numbers in terms of unemployment in presidential reelection years and depth of the political challenges are great here. >> heather: i'll ask you more about historically in a moment but the numbers have been called into question. there is actually a huge disconnect between the modest of new jobs report and significant decrease in the unemployment rate. jack welch, he went to as far to suggest that the numbers may be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward.
is to stay longer. >> exactly. and i think when romney and ryan have talked about afghanistan, they've gotten themselves in trouble because they cannot say they want to stay longer. and then the other response, listen to the generals. what if you -- what if you disagree with the generals? are they going to listen to the generals if they want to stay for another ten years? that's unclear. >> the other thing going back to the stylistic element of that question in the debate, i think it's because we didn't actually have a foreign policy debate. we had a debate about u.s. military policy and interceptions in a free country. >> that's a good point. >> interviewed and not interviewed. >> climate change, mexico. >> china. >> brazil, china, india. any of those things. >> i want to hear more from you on foreign policy after we take a quick break. and of battery more emergency workers trust in their maglites: duracell. one reason: duralock power preserve. it locks in power for up to 10 years in storage. guaranteed. so, whether it's 10 years' of life's sunny days... or... the occasional stormy one... tr
.com. what do we know now? mitt romney doesn't know what he's talking about with respect to the deadly consequences of being uninsured. trapped as he wants between contradictory positions on health care, he reiterated his position on current status quo in which the uninshierd end up in emergency rooms. we don't have a setting across this country where if you don't have insurance we just say to you, tough luck, you're going to have to die when you have a heart attack. no. you go to the hospital, get treated, you get treatment and it's paid for. we don't have people that become ill who die in their apartment because they don't have insurance. we know back as governor of massachusetts this was precisely the kind of high cost and haphazard care that romney care was designed to avoid and we also know it just flat isn't true that no one in america dies from being uninsured. in fact, a 2009 study from harvard found that nearly 45,000 deaths each year are tied to the lack of insurance. we know the romney the romney plan would ultimately leave an estimated 72,000 without insurance. and we know
said six times, he talked about the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the ryan-romney ticket for making this an issue. >> steve: of course, that's what they were talk being yesterday. so who won? cnn and cnbc did polls and mr. ryan was on top. cbs had one with some focus group. they felt that the vice president won. peggy nuland writes fort second time in two weeks, the democrat came out and defeated himself. in both cases, the republican was strong and the democrat somewhat disturbing. another way to say it is the old man tried it patronize the kid and the kid stood his ground. the old man pushed and the kid pushed back. >> brian: she did not mean that complimentary. >> gretchen: i actually think had is a debate that's going to percolate over a couple of days. when people go back and read and maybe see video and see this reaction, i think it may percolate over time where people will maybe change their opinion of exactly how it went. >> brian: it was -- >> gretchen: i think a lot of people -- i think it rubbed them the wrong way with the attitude. the headlines now. one month

romney take the lead over president obama in ohio he? >>> we're talking to fran townsend, cnn legal analyst jeffrey toobin, jen psaki, and comedians joe derosa and robert kelly, "a man's guide to infidelity: cheat." wonderful. "starting point" begins right n now. roland martin is the host of washington watch with roland martin on tv one. kelly ann conway is with us. and john berman, as always, is with us. the state department giving a detailed account of last month's attack on the u.s. consulate there. the house, the u.s. mission there. the house oversight committee will weigh in on security failings, saying it was not a spontaneous offshoot of protests, saying security personnel in benghazi were out manned and even a reasonable security presence would not have fended off the assault. that's their position. u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed. anwar damon has more for us. >> reporter: all that remained in the u.s. compound in benghazi when cnn arrived on the scene three days after the september 11th attack. eyewitnesses told us it was a complex assaul
're going to talk to one of the congressmen who is running the hearing today. thanks, elise. >>> let's get to our top stories. john berman has that first. >> a lot of news this morning. mitt romney enjoying a nice bounce in the buckeye state. look at the brand new cnn/orc poll of likely voters in ohio after the first presidential debate. the president's lead there shrinking to four points. that is well within the margin of error. that makes the race for 18 electoral votes a statistically dead heat. before the debate some polls had the president ahead by ten points, i should say barack obama only beat john mccain in ohio by four points. i think they would take a four-point win there, no problem. mitt romney's not flip-flopping on big bird after he promised to cut fund for pbs. the obama camp went on the attack accusing the republican nominee of trying to kill the prop particular sesame street character. here's what he told wolf blitzer last night 12k3w4r big bird is going to be just fine. sesame street is a wonderful enterprise. cnn does not get funding but somehow y'all stay on the air. i
am sure that governor romney is going to remind him. >> greta: now to the nation's most famous boss, donald trump. who would he hire for vice-president? we spoke with donald trump earlier tonight. donald, nice it talk to you. >> hi, greta. >> greta: all right. what do you think about last night's debate between the two vice-presidential candidates? >> i thought it was very interesting. i thought they both did a very, very good job. both of them. very different. different styles. different thoughts, different politics. but i thought they were both very effective. >> greta: did you learn anything new, substantively? >> i didn't like where joe biden was blaming the intelligence -- our intelligence groups because that was putting something off on people that i am not sure if that was so necessarily so -- >> greta: or worse, saying he was uninformed in the position to be infield. that's another problem. a rock and a hard plies that one. >> i was surprised that he did that. but i will say, i thought he was very effective. i thought they were both very effective in very different ways. >>
, that recent have increased today. romney is giving a speech. by and large it's not likely this late in the day if there's a war on the scale. to have much of an impact. we haven't talk abouted is how people rank the issues. we do have a couple of issues in the poll about the ranking the issue of rlings in the muslim world and the israel issue. people rank it in the top five, but in an open question, not terms in comparison to other issues if you put in there. an republicans oddly enough, tend to rank a little bit higher than democrats. and maybe that's one thing that romney is doing. what would happen if there is an eltion? obviously, if let's say make a difference between romney and obama on this. i think two points. bill made a good point early on how democrats and republicans are operating out of the two different paradigms about the relationship with muslim countries. and you can see in public opinion. the constituencies -- they see it more a civilization that is complex. it is per vai stiff it you -- pervasive. there is a philosophical difference the constituent separate from -- second, i
believe government is a hindrance. but it seems to me people talk about cutting spending. then, of course, when it comes to their actual program, they don't want to cut. we had even the example of governor romney recently suggesting that if we went off the fiscal cliff and we had the spending cuts in defen it was going to kill jobs in virginia. virginia. i mean, you know. it was a program we didn't cut. >> that's we need leadership from the top as governor in gaza. and i will point back into the governors. successful governors do two things really well. they provide leadership and they propose bold initiatives to their legislatures, and they also have a strategy or a blueprint, if you will, for economic growth in their states for the future. those are the successful governors. we need the same type of leadership at the white house. >> no president has had real organization authority since ronald reagan. i would think that needs to come back. i would go so far as to put some back of authority that was lost after the nixon era. but congress has got to help. some committees in congress are n
. this is an election about getting our economy going again and getting the american people back to work. mitt romney's created hundreds of thousands of jobs and understands how to create jobs and also understands what big government can do to destroy jobs in the country. having him out there with his plan and talking about his plan and staying focused on the plan is exactly what needs to happen. as i like to say, he made the sale the other night, and he made the sale in a big way. [cheers and applause] you know, there's a big battleground poll that came out today, democrats and republican pollsters do polls together, and 73% of the people in the battleground poll -- well, this was the gallop poll this morning, 73% of the people who watched the debate thought that mitt romney won. [applause] how about this? how about 63% of the democrats who watched the debate thought that romney won. [applause] listen, i'm just a regular guy with a big job. a lot of you don't know, but i have 11 brothers and sisters, and my dad owned a bar, all right? i'm the last guy in the world who wanted to be a member of the co
